hi !

I am currently doing a test to detect / block encrypted files or with password, the tests are:
                
                Detect / block Excel files with password: test successful
                Detect / block Word files with password: test successful
                Detect / block ZIP files with password: test is not successful

It is not successful on ZIP files with password. What is happening with no "Password-Protected ZIP Archive" detection?

I tested it on 9 and 10 versions and a I get the same deal

In politics I am using "File Type" from "Message Attachment or File Type Match" by choosing the options:

 

Do I need to configure or consider something else in this policy ¿

I am not certain that it would help, but i know that there is an issue with Winzip 11, because they changed the compression method.
I have not encountered the issue you mentioned, and I have not found anything in the knowledge base concerning this issue.
I would recommend you open an issue,

Hi Naor

I've tested not only with Winzip but also with 7zip, Winrar and others, this problem is independent of the compressing application

As I said,
I believe you should open a case with Symantec support to try and resolve the issue.
